Calabacitas Recipe: A Flavorful New Mexican Zucchini Dish

2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 zucchini, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped
3 roasted red peppers, chopped
1 cup chickpeas
½ cup roasted corn
1 shallot, minced
½ cup cilantro, minced
¼ cup dill, finely chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon chipotle
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 lime, sliced
1 avocado, sliced
2 cups cauliflower, riced
1 cup spinach
2 small radishes, sliced
4 eggs, poached

DIRECTIONS:

In a large pan on medium, combine avocado oil, zucchinis, peppers, corn, shallots, cilantro, dill, cumin, chipotle, salt, pepper.
Saute for 10 minutes or until veggies are soft.
Layer all ingredients evenly between 4 bowls for serving.
Serve warm.

Have you ever tried calabacitas? It’s commonly served as a side dish in New Mexico, but when you add plenty of veggies, beans and a source of high-quality protein, this dish becomes a healthy and fulfilling meal.

I absolutely love preparing my own Mexican and New Mexican dishes because they contain healthy fats, plenty of protein and, when you use the right ingredients, satisfying complex carbohydrates. My huevos rancheros recipe and chicken enchilada recipe, for example, are delicious and loaded with nutrients that will leave you feeling energized and full for hours. I get the same feeling from my calabactias recipe, which is why it’s one of my go-to dishes during any season.

And for Dessert:
